Jack Pemment MA, MS

Jack Pemment came into neuroscience after studying theories of culture, particularly memes and memetics. This started his love affair with how "brain food" can have an impact on human behavior, and after graduating, he moved with his wife to Oxford, MS, to study neurobiological explanations of reactive and instrumental aggression at the University of Mississippi.

Jack has researched and blogged about human aggression and violent behavior for about ten years now, mostly from a neurobiological point of view. He is interested in extreme behaviors, particularly those which strike us the most abhorrent, and have often pondered how some people could have “given themselves permission” to act in these ways.
